I have thought about trying the foam stuff but I am worried I will have some type of negative response and speed up the balding process.
you look at least a NW2-2.5 to me. I started losing my hair at 17 as well and we have similar looking hair although mine has been more aggressive and im more of a NW3.
I highly reccomend you at least start on Minoxidil+Nizoral if not Fin as well(it's the best of the 3 as it moreso addresses the problem but obviously if you dont want to take it you dont have to.)
If it's any consolation i've been on the big 3(min+niz+fin) for about 4 months now and have yet to lose anymore hair.
minoxidil I was on before for about 2 years, it slowed my loss a bit, so that's why i'd reccomend it at least.
